[DML] Re: Humming sound


This Sounds like a front wheel bearing is going bad. Take the car out for a drive, 
preferably on a winding road. As you make left and right turns at speed you will probably 
here changes in the noise levels.  You can also do this on straight sections by weaving left 
and right slightly and listening for the changes. Don't fret though, I've never heard of 
these types of bearings failing catistrophicaly. But if it is  a bad bearing it should be 
replaced as soon as practical. The good thing is the front bearings are relatively Cheap.  if 
you change it yourself you will nead access to a hydraulic press otherwise take the spindle 
hubs to a local auto parts store that does full service shop work. they can press them off 
and on for a nominal fee.
